LITTLE ROCK — U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., unveiled his first television ad of the general election Tuesday.
Boozman is seeking a second Senate term and is being challenged by Democrat Conner Eldridge and Libertarian Frank Gilbert. Boozman’s campaign ran two television ads during his successful GOP primary campaign.
Chris Caldwell, Boozman’s campaign manager, said Tuesday the ad will run on broadcast and cable television across the state over the next two weeks. The campaign is spending a little over $300,000 on the ad, he said.
The 30-second spot features clips of Boozman visiting various locations around the state and a voice-over that says Boozman has “travelled all across our state getting to know us and listening to our problems.”
“So whether he’s getting our veterans the care they need, protecting Medicare and Social Security for our seniors, improving our kid’s education or helping our businesses, the people of Arkansas know John Boozman puts us first,” the voice-over says.
The ad does not mention Boozman’s opponents.
